Unlike my previous deal, this game sunk almost as soon as it hit the shelves. The recent series reboot for Dead To Rights proved to be a thoroughly average affair on release with little to really recommend it other than some deliciously brutal stealthy sections where you played as Jack Slate's faithful dog.
If, however, you eat mediocrity for breakfast, then this 'reimagining' of the 2002 game might be worth your time. You can currently find it at PowerplayDirect for £13.99, just over a quid cheaper than nearest competitor Tesco.
I'm just not really sure who thought that attempting to update an eight year old game that didn't exactly set the world alight in the first place was a good idea. The developers have tried to make it so that there are a wealth of options available to the player, from gunplay to some bone crunching melee combat and, to be fair, they've succeeded to a certain extent. The melee combat, in particular, is pretty satisfying but there's not really anything here to elevate the game from the rest of its peers.
The dog sections are fun, breaking up the third person shooter monotony with some welcome stealthy sections, but even so this is a game that outstays its welcome by at least a good two or three hours. £13.99 is a fair price for it...I certainly wouldn't pay any more for it.
